Love is Giving the Gift of Possibility!

“When we love, we always strive to become better than we are. When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too.”
― Paulo CoelhoThe Alchemist

Today, I simply want to leave you with this clip from someone who is very important for so many different reasons.  This woman that is spoken about played a dynamic role in changing the face of children/adults and individuals alike with disabilities.  Eunice Shriver was an amazing woman who I admire greatly in her efforts in creating the organization Special Olympics.  Enjoy!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YjYuj4BvIsc&feature=youtu.be

Love and Inspiration: Return to Normal?

Standard

“Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.”
Bruce Lee 

Today, I am going to use this as a morning inspiration. This artist took trash and created a beautiful piece of art. Now I realize the connotation of the matter as it could be taken as negatively as the subject, but I think he did a phenomenal job. From trash it became this beautiful piece. Kind of cool that he is thinking outside the box!! One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!

Don’t be afraid to think outside the box.  Don’t be afraid to try something different and make it your own.  Be not afraid of the repercussions of being different.  Venture into the great unknown and fall in love with your life.  Lately, I have been lacking inspiration.  I have felt in a funk, but different then usual.  I am so blessed because my friends have been there for me when I have needed them most.  Mostly all old and longstanding cherished friends.  Oh how I love them all so.

“Surrounding myself with all my positive friends is the best medicine that no doctor can prescribe.”   Nishan Panwar

There is a lot going on right now in life and a lot is on my plate.  I will be relieved when school is done (6 months and counting), and Wedding is done.  AND life might go back to some normalcy.  Who am I kidding!  My life is far from normal.  I am forever thankful for that is fact!

Getting married, lessons in LOVE!!, and trying to achieve something to alleviate “brain dead”

Standard

I have until April 13th until I will resume some normalcy in my life.  You see, my sister is getting married so we are winding down as details are finalized, final arrangements have been made and now the stress and excitement have met hand in hand!   MY SISTER IS GETTING MARRIED!!!  Clearly, you cannot tell I am not excited at all.  My “extra” time has been spent with working out, tanning, and finalizing details with the Bachelorette Party, bridesmaid’s hair stuff, and other minor details…as you can imagine just trying not to go brain-dead has been a seemingly ‘hard to achieve’.  I really need to invent a pill for that or maybe sleep is the answer….can anyone give me some assistance here???

I have been learning a lot about love though in the days that I have not shared. Below are a few gems that I have found to “tie” you over until I am back to “normal”  hahaha……I am far from normal and that is why I laughed.  🙂

Lastly, here is a beautiful inspiration that I found to which I want each and every single one of you to remember when you catch yourself complaining, moaning and groaning about problems or things not going as planned…well here is a girl at 14 years old who has met her demise yet, has chosen not to allow it to defeat her spirit.  Could you have been that way if faced with that situation??  http://gma.yahoo.com/teen-terminal-cancer-heads-prom-ride-bucket-list-004236847–abc-news-topstories.html

Hope you have a fabulous day,
